Eight sets of pier foundations constructed in the St. Croix River were deemed substantially complete in late December.

Work transitioned to Lunda/Ames Joint Venture, the low bidder for the bridge superstructure. By mid-February, Lunda/Ames constructed a temporary causeway from the Minnesota shore to the first set of river pier foundations.
